Quite often God puts one of my students in my heart. Such is the case with Michael. As in "Hello how are you doing? My name is Michael." If you've followed Michael's prayer requests, they were pretty consistent in asking for him to 'get out of here.' Well, the gate hasn't opened just yet, but Michael is scheduled to go home next Friday. He's had a couple of other home dates come but a few days before that go home, it is rescinded. Please keep it in prayer that he indeed does get to go home.

I too have prayer requests for the chaplaincies at both Dixon and Sheridan. Sheridan's chaplain resigned, her last day being yesterday (10/19/1). Dixon's chaplain will be leaving come October 31. Please pray that God fills these chaplaincies with chaplains who first and foremost have are indeed saved and have sound doctrine and theology. Additionally that they full of grace, mercy, compassion for the inmates and are an encouragement and accommodating to all the volunteers.

To Him be the glory!
